A Walk in Autumn's Wood
I hope you take autumn by the hand and ramble down a lane
Where nature's forms and colors refresh your mind again;
I hope you find a forest path strewn with scarlet, green and gold,
Where leaves float down and brush against your heart and mind and soul;
May you walk in autumn's wood, my friend, where gentle things survive
And may it guide your inner paths and sing your soul alive.
-- Author Unknown
Autumn...my very soul is wedded to it.  If I were a bird, I would do nothing
but fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.  
-- George Eliot
Listen!  The wind is rising and the air is wild with brightly colored leaves.
We've had our summer evenings, now for glorious October eves.
-- Humbert Wolfe
It's pleasant on a fine spring day to see the buds expand,
It's pleasant in the summer time to see the flowering land,
It's pleasant on a winter's night to sit around the blaze,
But what are joys like those, my friends, compared to autumn days?
-- Charles Dickens
A few days ago I walked along the edge of the lake and was treated to the crunch
and rustle of leaves with every step I made.  The acoustics of this season are
different and all sounds, no matter how hushed, are as crisp as autumn air.
-- Eric Sloane
